Message from the Dean
Welcome to the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the College of Business Administration. Having earned my BS and MBA from UMSL, I can testify to the quality of the faculty and programs, and how they prepared me for a long, successful, satisfying business career. As further validation, the college is accredited by the world's premier business school accrediting organization, the AACSB (Association to Advance College Schools of Business) in both business and accounting; less than 2% of business schools worldwide have achieved this dual accreditation. The Princeton Review ranks us as one of the best business schools in the nation. U.S. News and World Report continues to rank our international business program among America’s top 20 – for 14 years running. Our graduate business program is ranked by Military Times among the top 25 “Best for Vets” programs. And, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have designated our cybersecurity program as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CD), making UMSL one of only two institutions in Missouri with this designation.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of UMSL Business and we are always evolving to meet the needs of our students and to better prepare you for career success. Here is just a sampling of what is going on in the college:
This past May, around 340 UMSL Business students graduated, joining our body of alumni, over 29,000 strong! Based on a 2015 survey by UMSL career Services, 100% of Accounting and 92.5% of all business undergraduate alumni have jobs or are pursuing a graduate degree within 6 months of graduation.
Anheuser-Busch Hall, phase one of our dedicated business building is nearly finished and on schedule for an August 2017 grand opening. This fall, UMSL Business students will get to experience the innovative learning environments, centralized advising offices, and study and collaboration spaces we’ve been working toward for years.
We continue to expand offerings in entrepreneurship education in conjunction with our UMSL Accelerate program. We’ll soon offer an interdisciplinary certificate in entrepreneurship and have plans for an undergraduate minor in the near future as well.
Our newly rebranded department of Supply Chain & Analytics is responding to growing trends in business. Learn more here.
If you are an undergraduate student considering UMSL, I encourage you to explore our website to check out our undergraduate program offerings in management, marketing, accounting, finance, information systems, logistics & operations management, and international business.
Are you interested in graduate school? Our Flex MBA program is delivered by an outstanding faculty possessing a powerful combination of formal academic training and relevant business experience. Our exciting cohort-based PMBA 2.0™ has received numerous accolades and offers a unique blended format which allows you to maximize your time. Our innovative Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program has been approved and we’re busy recruiting and interviewing students for the initial cohort to begin in spring 2018. You can learn more at dba.umsl.edu.
At UMSL, we are well-known for producing hard working, well-prepared graduates. As the global marketplace evolves, we will continue to ensure that our students are well grounded in the impacts of the latest technologies and in the leadership attributes needed to ensure success.
Whether you are looking for a place to start your business education, want to further advance your career through the pursuit of a graduate degree, or are interested in other learning opportunities, please explore all that UMSL Business has to offer.
We look forward to working with you.
